“Very clean,great location stone throw away from everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Only back from my stay in the kontiki.was in the centre of everything which was great.rooms were cleaned every second day which was another bonus.but for the staff i wouldnt say alot found them very rude with no manner,there had been no times mentioned or even any sign up for checkout which is 11am,we assumed it was 12pm like some other places.wen we checked out at 11.30 am we were told off by reception about our late check out in front of other customers which we found embarassing.there was also nowhere to store yous luggage.plus the hidden charges for tv,toaster and kettle was a disgrace for self catering

Spent a week in Kontiki apartment mid Feb 2013. Good location and kept clean. The apartment was somewhat dated and could do with some modernisation, however we spent little time in there other than sleeping. It may have been lower budget but was good value for the price we paid. Plenty of sun beds available beside pool, on sun terrace and on patio area outside appartment. Staff were invariably pleasant, cheerful and helpful. Ended up eating most of our meals in the hotel bar as the food was good and the atmosphere was very relaxing. The most helpful person we found was Dawn in the Tourist Ticket office on the front, she was always willing to help out with places to go and bus times as well as the usual island tours.

We stayed in the Kontiki for the sixth time in October 2012. We will never, ever, stay there again. Having been such regular customers, and having let the receptionist know this, we thought we would at least get a nice room. Quite the opposite, we were given the most disgusting, filthy and unhygienic apartment I have ever had the misfortune to stay in.

The bathroom resembled something from a Bangkok prison and we have the photographs to prove it. It was so bad that you felt dirtier after a shower than before and I nearly cried every time I had to use it. The bath was lined with thick black mould, the bottom of the bath was cracked and the cracks were lined with what can only be described as filth.

We requested to be moved immediately, but the hotel kept fobbing us off and saying 'tomorrow'. The Kon Tiki was once a very nice aparthotel but I now wouldn't wish a stay there on my worst enemy.

the apartments really need to be up graded. the bathroom was disgraceful to say the least. bath tub cracked and filled with plaster the toilet cistern broken no other available apts to change to not that we were given any help from reception on any occasion. if they put as much effort on cleaning and maintaining the inside of apts as they do on the outside grounds and pool it would be fantastic . we did not let it spoil our hols but seriously they would want to take a good look at their apts. house keeping came after 5pm which is the time people were back from their day in the sun totally inconvienient dont know if this was a tactic as we would tell them its ok.

Room Tip: sorryicant recommend a room as they wont take any requests there so no point asking

well for one thing we were the last apartment next to the strip so the noise at 4 and 5 in the morning kept us awake.When we came in the werent really helpful at reception only should us on a map where we stayed and didnt even tell us were to go.when we eventully found or apartment we were suprised to see that there was no air-con,kettle or toaster which i taught was in every self catering apartment.when went to reception to get safe key had to pay 30 euro for the week which u get 10 back there was also a charge roughly the same for the kettle,toaster and even the tv.the journey from the apartment to the pool we had to walk up 54steps not bad for us as we are young enough but there were alot of older couples there which had the same problems as ourseleves all in all wouldnt go back and wouldnt reccomend it either its all about how much money they can get out of you not friendly either.Pool and bar are fine nice and friendly bartenders

Room Tip: ask for a room near the pool less noice at night

We were concerned at some of the reviews we read but went with an open mind. We did not have an upgraded room however it was clean, the beds were fine. We did have a lack of crockery but that was soon sorted out. The staff were friendly and helpful and quickly responded to any queries. There is no getting away from the 'hill' it is steep but was good for the legs! We would be happy to return for another holiday.

Just back from this apartment stayed tues 12 th to 19th Feb 2013 with my hubby and 11yr old. Booked in Oct 2012 purely for the location as i stayed here 10 yrs ago myself and it is ideally located between the old town and 5 min from beach. Booked upper floor with sea view on arrvial we got an apartment upper floor looking straight across alley way at other apartments no view so I went to reception an asked were all the ones round the pool with view taken she said no I could n't have one of them as a german company bought all of them round the pool and they were renovated for there customers so they are not for rent and we had to take what we got. Ok got over that so we had no view the apartment itself appeared clean but very dated but didnt mind once it was clean. No extra towels or linen were provided for my daughter so we had to go looking for that. the next night we were sitting down looking at a movie and along came a mouse so we spent the next hour looking for him we hadnt left any doors open but the front door had a huge gap under it so we presumed he came in there they sent over the night man but he couldnt find him either but said he would set bait again tomorrow. In the week we stayed not once was the bed linen changed we had to go and beg for clean towels after 5 days and that was the only time they changed them. They never offered us alternative accomodation over the mouse problem who appeared many times after luckily i am not afraid of mice but I didnt like him around either . The floor were filthy never washed once in that time . So overall the kontiki are not suitable accomodation for anyone as they are not being maintained at all or there are double standards .Glad to be home from the filthy dump opened my cases very slowly incase we brought any of there mice with us today. So over all i wouldnt even rate the place we were treated so badly and any company selling this accomodation should think twice as it will ruin your reputation

Room Tip: book the Morana across the road. sea view and no vermin
